The Path Less Traveled

We joined some others in our homeschool group today for a nature walk/scavenger hunt. 

Each of us was given a list of things to find during our walk.

Some of the things we found lots of, like mushroom:

We also saw beaver tracks and drag marks, the beaver den, a tree they cut down but couldn’t move, some turkey and coyote scat, a turtle, a salamander and lots of flowers, spider webs and several kinds of pine cones. 

Here is the turtle!

We stopped about an hour out to eat lunch on the shores of the beaver pond and then hiked back to home base.  The kids had a blast and I really enjoyed seeing all the nature too!  I also enjoyed chatting with the other moms back at the house while the kids played in the yard.
